Scouting Around Palm Beach And Martin County

In the St. Lucie River the pompano bite, which had been so red hot the last few weeks, has backed way off.
The snook bite, however, has remained steady with anglers having good luck working the area bridges and docks. Throwing jigs at night or using live shrimp or pilchards, anglers are getting more and more slot-size fish with a few big ones mixed in.
The sea trout bite has picked up quite a bit. One fisherman working up around the power plant reported catching 26 in one day. They are Around the docks at the Sailfish Club their has been some good action on tarpon as well as a few schools of jack crevalle.
Anglers working the Boynton Inlet jetties have been catching sheepshead, croaker, mangrove snapper, ladyfish, jack crevalle and snook.
The snook have been hammering Flare Hawk jigs and jumbo live shrimp at night during the first three hours of an outgoing tide.            
Around the Lantana Bridge anglers have been catching large sand perch, croaker and a few pompano using fresh cut shrimp.
Working the dock lights and bridge fenders in the Intracoastal Waterway, anglers using small lures, jigs and live shrimp have been catching snook and ladyfish.
Despite the heavy rain and wind the last few days the bass bite has been excellent.
Working the outside grass lines from Cochrans Pass all the way around to the Belle Glade area, anglers are catching good numbers and good-size fish.
Live shiners are working best.
